spring and project summary

The semester is ending and, as usual, I’m running around in circles trying to get stuff done around this time of year. First, a post about my spring break! Went to a pasta cooking party, went to the movies, had a good session of dance practice, attended the Legend of Zelda Symphony, and went to the beach. It was a very good week.

Legend of Zelda Symphony

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecakes

Good times at Natural Bridges!

Some awesome bubblegum ice cream at Marianne’s in Santa Cruz. My favorite!!

Right after spring break ended, all these projects and assignments kind of attacked me all at once. Quick summary of stuff done outside of school:

A few rough mockups for a logo project for a friend.

Rough draft for all natural day spa’s website. I’m really rusty…

Flyer for one of Synergy Ballroom Studio’s events

Photos from my dance teacher’s showcase and, more recently, Stanford Cardinal Classic

Finally, some major school projects. More details on these later:

Experimenting with the vacuum former

Designing my full acrylic laser-cut robot dude

Tron memory disk for a group project

And lastly, I’m trying out Instagram for the first time. I think it’s ok.

I have much left to do before school ends… more documentation on my projects later!

Sup! I’m in the middle of tackling the spring semester at school. I’m already nearing the end of my third year in college, and I’m starting to see the finish line in sight. Ideas about my future, my priorities, and the major projects I need to accomplish are finally starting to become more concrete in my head. My schedule is pretty packed this time around, but I have a couple of interesting art classes this semester, a better chance to be productive, and an opportunity to work as both a student assistant for school and an intern for a very awesome art+technology organization downtown!

Yay! Spring! The season of optimism and opportunity I guess!

I’m very excited. I’m suddenly very busy too, but it’s the enthusiastic-positive-feel-good kind of busy.

Just wanted to throw some random pictures of the things I’ve been up to.

First, flashback to 2-3 years ago, when I was a freshman. I made this small project as an assignment for one of my classes. Designed in Google Sketchup, transferred over to Pepakura, then printed and folded.

Years later, I revisited the same form for a project and developed it into a pattern. This pattern could then be transferred into different media, such as clay, fabric, paper, cardboard, etc:

Unfortunately, I accidentally deleted many pictures of the various things in my classes that I’ve been working on, but I’ll take more and put them up soon.

Well, other than school and work, I think I’ve been eating many sweets lately. Everyone’s been getting me sweets and cupcakes and such, and my dance team at school just recently had a very delicious bake sale.

But I am also continuing to work out a bit and dance it off.

More updates to come soon!

Sidenote: I’m thinking about changing the blog banner sometime.
